Saturday was finally the day! The hunter trial which was supposed to be in May which got postponed had arrived. All I can say is I want to do more. Right now. All the time. It was so much fun! We did the pre-novice pairs class and then Beth and Sparkie did the novice class. The boys were super well behaved and I could not be prouder of them! No placings but fantastic experience so who cares, hoping to get to another one in September :)
Tuesday Sunny and Sparkie did some loose jumping. Sunny was much easier than he's ever been loose jumping before, I mean he actually did jump the jump which is not something he's ever done before. He's not a natural jumper, his style of jumping is very amusing and it's definitely not his area of expertise but he loves it! He went up to 1.05m. Sparkie went up to 1.25m easily, he didn't particularly want to make the effort because he's perfect so why should he? But he still jumped like a pro.
|I love it when he floats|
|Honestly looks like he's being carried over by an invisible crane|
Today Ron had his first session of 'work'. We did some free schooling and showed him a tiny cross pole. His reaction was perfect. Definitely put in the required effort there mate. Well done.
